I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance; a scene filled with flowers and friends. I asked him what kind of wedding he wished for; he said one that would make me his wife.

Today was a LONG day.  I needed something to take my mind off of the days events and figured cooking a healthy, delicious meal would do the trick! I popped over to PW's amazing blog to pick something out.  All of her recipes that I have cooked so far have come out amazing! I picked out this one and was on my way!

Carrot and Squash Curry Soup

Slice 4 large yellow squashes
THINLY slice 3 carrots
Dice 1 large yellow onion.

Combine 3 Tbsps of Olive Oil (I used EVOO) with the one large diced yellow onion and 5 cloves minced garlic in a large pot. Heat over medium heat for a few minutes.

Add 3 THINLY sliced carrots in and cook until the carrots start getting tender.  The recipe says three minutes, but mine took more like 5-6. Who knows!

Once carrots are tender, add the 4 large sliced yellow squashes. Stir until Squash has become tender and add the 1 Tbsp curry powder and pinch of salt. (Hint: if you really like curry, like me, add more curry. I think I added 2 tsp's more to mine!) Recipe also calls for dry white wine, but it isn't necessary.  I only had about a 1/4 cup left from a previous recipe, so I poured that in! Stir all together.

Next, add the 48 ounces of Chicken Broth.  Bring to a simmer and keep it at a simmer and cover for one hour.

After this has all simmered for an hour, blend with either an immersion blender (which I am not lucky enough to have) or a regular blender. I had to do this in 2 batches since my blender wouldn't hold all of this at once!

Pour all back into the pot and heat.

You will most likely want a side of some sort.  I picked out garlic bread!!

Bon Appetit!

This was a super easy, cheap and delicous recipe that I would recommend to anyone!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
